‘negative’ cards?

Ohhhhh no, it’s not what you think!

I love using negative space. It’s kind of like a ‘die cut’ way to emboss.
It just adds a whole other dimension to a project.

Take a look at Robyn’s cards:

[ Shapes | Signed.Sealed.Delivered. ]

Loooove how she added the sentiment right into the envelope!

Brilliant idea!

Aaaaand, she used my most favoritist (yeah, it’s a word) envelope!
The pull-tab adds so much fun to your ensemble.
And adding a stamped sentiment to the pull tab? Love it!

Here’s what Robyn has to say:

When Kerri came out with this fabulous card kit, I was just amazed! Pure genius! I love the idea of the little place to rip the cardstock to open up the envelope! So darling and what a fun thing for the person to open up!!

I wanted to use the envelopes as a part of my card – so I typed some words on the side of the envelope so that when it cut out and it was folded, it would show on the front. I layered cardstock behind each word to help them stand out. Such a fun way to add a saying to a card through an envelope! I glued each envelope on top of a standard card size piece of cardstock and put the note inside. Love the way this looks! So fun! Thanks Kerri for the great inspiration!

    Great examples. I may have been in a coma-like state, because I didn’t notice the tear away strip originally. Glad that’s rectified. ;)

    never noticed the zipper pull in that kit before! I have to buy it now.

    any chance of adding a 2012/2013 to that kit to replace the 2010 and 2011 icons?
